The best and most creative will be used in the Official Turk^ Testicle Recipe Book. We need jKople to use their creative minds and "cook up" some great recipes for this holiday season. Ideas and recipes can be faxed to the Parkside any time after Nov. 22. The fax number is (708)669-9069.

Huntley High School encourages students to participate in volunteer service. The high school has over 49 volunteers working in offices or classrooms, doing such things as grading papers, cutting out art projects, making copies, filing, running errands, tutoring students or just helping teachers answer students' questions during a busy day. Volunteering serves many purposes. It helps teachers and students accomplish more in less time. When volunteers help someone learn a new skill, they becomemore confident anddevelop a betterunderstanding ofthemselves. Volunteering can help students gain useful information about themselves and possible fiiture careers. The volunteer feels good about themselves because they have helped someone. The student who receives the help also feels good because of the attention and skill improvement. The sixth grade classes have been helped by volunteer Kris May. She has been helping with computer classes and sixth grade field trips. She answers questions and teaches word processing, data bases,and spreadsheets. She helped with canoeing on the Kishwaukee River and with a golfing trip. May is a sophomore at Huntley High School and is fifteen years old. The sixth graders really appreciate her time and help.
